Ice fishing…

ice vehicle IMGP0713Gettysburg’s emergency crews were called to East Whitlock Bay on Friday, Jan. 10. The fire department, ambulance, and sheriff were summoned by a 911 call of a fisherman who had broken through the ice with his vehicle on the bay west of town at Lake Oahe. The call came in at 7:20 p.m. from the fisherman, Terry Beiswanger of Mitchell, SD, who reported he was standing on the roof of his vehicle. Rescue units arrived and safely retrieved the man, who suffered no injuries and had crawled out the vehicle’s window before getting wet.  The vehicle, a 1997 Chevy Suburban, rested in three feet of water and was recovered Sunday by Hoven Repair. Extreme caution is urged when driving on the ice at the river, and pay close attention to areas where currents are running.

Ward 3 covers the southwest corner of town bordered by East Street, Blaine Avenue, Harrison Street, and Logan Avenue.
Anyone willing to serve on the board as a representative from Ward 3 is asked to send a letter of application to the city council.

A map outlining the three wards within the city is pictured on page 2 of the News and is also online at www.pottercountynews.com. A representative must live within the boundaries of the ward to serve on the council.
It is asked to have the letter of application be presented to the city council in care of the City Finance Office in downtown Gettysburg by Jan. 31, so a decision can be made at the Feb. 3 council meeting. A representative will be appointed by the council to complete the remaining year of the term until the April 8 election.
Council Vacancies
Five positions on the Gettysburg City Council are up for election in April.
Aldermen are needed for four year terms in Ward 1, Ward 2, and Ward 3. Aldermen are also needed for two year terms in Ward 1 and Ward 3.
